3. Answer the following question:


(a) What is test checking? Solution: Test checking is concerned with selecting and examining a representative sample from a large number of similar items. There is no hard and fast rule of selecting item for the test checking. The justification for the test checking lies in the theory of probability which states that a sample selected from a series of items will tend to exhibit the same characteristics as present in the population, i.e. full series of items while test checking the following aspects need to be considered: (i) Presentation and disclosure. (ii) Adherence to the generally accepted accounting practices. (iii) Compliance with the statutory requirements. (iv) Existence of errors and frauds. (v) Arithmetical accuracy. (vi) Materiality of the items involved. (b) Define vouching. Solution: Vouching is the examination by the auditor of all documentary evidences, which are available to support the authenticity of the transaction entered in the client‘s record‖. – Spicer and Pegler The act of examining all documentary evidences (vouchers) is referred to as vouching. Its basic objective is to establish the authenticity of the transactions recorded in the primary books of account. (c) Write a short note on cut off procedure. Solution: (i)

(ii) (iii)

Definition: Periods usually coincide with calendar months, Which lead to the need for specific demarcation between transactions forming the part of the one period from those included in the following period. Thus, cut-off procedures are adopted to allocate revenues and costs to the proper accounting period. Areas of concern: Close attention should be paid to the accounts payable and accounts receivables functions. These two functions are the most susceptible to recording of transactions in the wrong accounting period. Cut-of-point: Serially numbered documents like invoice for sales or purchase bills are allocated to the respective accounting periods by establishing cut-off points based on the serial number.

Answer to MTP_ Intermediate _Syllabus 2012_Dec2016_Set 1 (iv)

Importance: Cut-off procedures require detailed testing by the auditor so as to ensure proper accounting of assets and liabilities, which may arise without the corresponding physical delivery of goods taking place. (d) What is continuous audit. Solution: A continuous auditing is ―a method used to perform control and risk assessments automatically on a more frequent basis. Continuous auditing changes the audit paradigm from periodic review of a sample of transactions to ongoing audit testing of 100 percent of transactions. It becomes an integral part of modern auditing. Technology is a key to enabling such an approach.‖ Continuous audit may be defined as the examination and verification of firm‘s financial transactions and their supporting documents, continuously throughout the year, at regular or irregular intervals. A continuous audit driven system generates alarm triggers that provide advance notice about anomalies and errors detected by the system. It is performed usually by firm‘s internal auditors to eliminate the year-end workload. (e) What is secret reserve? Solution: Any reserve not appearing on the balance sheet is called as a secret Reserve. The existence of the reserve may be inferred from an intelligent verification of the accounts by the auditor even through the amount cannot be ascertained. Generally such type of reserve appears in financial institutions and insurance companies.

Section – B Answer any Three Questions:


4. (a) Beekay Ltd. purchased fixed assets costing ` 5,000 lakh on 01.04.2012 payable in foreign currency (US$) on 05.04.2013. Exchange rate of 1US$=` 50.00 and ` 54.98 as on 01.04.2012 and 31.03.2013 respectively. The company also obtained a soft loan of US$ 1 lakh on 01.04.2012 payable in three annual equal installments. First installment was due on 01.05.2013. You are required to state, how these transactions would be accounted for in the books of accounts ending 31st March, 2013. [7] Solution: As Per As 11 (Revised) ‗The effects of changes in foreign exchange rates, exchange differences arising on the settlement of monetary items or on reporting an enterprise‘s monetary items at rates different from those at which they were initially recorded during the period, or reported in previous financial statements. Should be recognized as income or as an expense in the period in which they arise. However, Ministry of Corporate Affairs has recently amended As 11 through a notification. As per the notification, exchange different arising on reporting of long-term foreign currency monetary items at rates different from those at which they were initially recorded during the period, or reported in previous financial statements, in so far as they relate to requisition of depreciable capital asset, can be added to or deducted from cost of asset. The MCA has given an option for the enterprises to capitalize the exchange differences arising on reporting of long term foreign currency monetary items till 31st March, 2020. Thus the company can capitalize the exchange differences arising due to long term loans linked with acquisition of fixed assets. Transaction 1: Calculation of exchange difference on fixed assets Academics Department, The Institute of Cost Accountants of India (Statutory Body under an Act of Parliament) Page 5

Answer to MTP_ Intermediate _Syllabus 2012_Dec2016_Set 1 Foreign Exchange Liability =

= US$ 100 lakhs

Exchange Difference = US $ 100 lakhs x(` 54.98 - ` 50) = `498 lakhs. Loss due to exchange difference amounting ` 498 lakhs will be capitalized and added in the carrying value of fixed assets. Depreciation on the unamortized amount will be provided in the remaining years. Transaction 2: Soft loan exchange difference (US $1 lakhs i.e. ` 50 lakhs) Value of loan 31.13.13 US $ 1 lakh x ` 54.98= `54.98 lakhs As 11 also provides that in case of liability designated as long-term foreign currency monetary item (having a term of 12 months or more at the time of origination) the exchange difference is to be accumulated in the Foreign Currency Monetary item Translation Difference (FCMITD) and should be written off over the useful life of such long –term liability, by recognition as income or expenses in each of such periods. Exchange difference between reporting currency (INR) and foreign currency (USD) as on 31.03.2013= Us $ 1.00 lakh X ` (54.98 – 50) = ` 4.98 lakh. Loan account is to be increased to 54.98 lakh and the account is to be debited by 4.98 lakh. Since loan is repayable in 3 equal annual installments, ` 4.98 lakh/3 = ` 1.66 lkh is to be charged in profit and loss account for the year ended 31 st March, 2013 and balance in FCMITD A/c ` (4.98 lakh – 1.66 lakh)= ` 3.32 lakh is to be shown on the ‗Equity & Liabilities‘ side of the Balance sheet as a negative figure under the head ‗reserve and surplus‘ as a separate line item. (b) Rama Limited issued 8% debentures of `3,00,000 in earlier year on which interest is payable half yearly on 31st March and 30th September.

5. (a) In April, 2010, A limited 18,00,000 Equity shares of ` 10 each, ` 5 per share was called up on that date which was paid by all the shareholders. The remaining ` 5 was called up on 19-2010. All the shareholders (except one having 3,60,000 shares) paid the sum in September 2010. The net profit for the year ended 31-3-2011 is ` 33 lakhs after dividend on preference shares and dividend distribution tax of ` 6.60 lakhs. Compute the basic EPS for the year ended 31st March, 2011 as per AS 20. [9] Solution: Basic Earnings per share (EPS)=

Working Note: Calculation of weighted average number of equity shares As per para 19 of As 20 ‗Earnings per share‘, partly paid equity shares are treated as a fraction of equity share to the extent that they were entitled to participate in dividend relative to a fully paid equity share during the reporting period. Assuming that the partly paid shares are entitled to participate in the dividend to the extent of amount paid, weighted average number of shares will be calculated as follows: Date 1.4.2010 1.9.2010 1.9.2010

No. of equity shares 18,00,000 14,40,000 3,60,000

Weighted average no. of equity shares 18,00,000 x 5/10x5/12=3,75,000 14,40,000 x 7/12= 8,40,000 3,60,000x5/10x7/12=1,05,000 13,20,000

(b) On 1st April, 2012, a company offered 100 shares to each of its 500 employees at ` 50 per share. The employees are given a year to accept the offer. The shares issued under the plan shall be subject to lock-in on transfer for three years from the grant date. The market price of shares of the company on the grant date is ` 60 per share. Due to post-vesting restrictions on transfer, the fair value of shares issued under the plan is estimated at ` 56 per share. On 31st March, 2013, 400 employees accepted the offer and paid ` 50 per share purchased Nominal value of each share is ` 10. Record the issue of share in the books of the company under the aforesaid plan. [6] Solution: Fair value of an option = ` 56 – ` 50 = ` 6 Number of shares issued = 400 employees x100 share /employee = 40,000 shares Fail value of ESP = 40,000 shares x ` 6 = ` 2,40,00

(b) What are the objectives of verification of assets & liabilities?


Solution: Verification means – ―Proving the truth” An auditor has not only to see the arithmetical accuracy and bonadides of the transactions in the books of accounts by vouching only, but has also to see that the assets as recorded in the balance sheet actually exist. The fact that there is an entry regarding purchases fo an asset and has been found to be currently recorded, is not a proof that the asset is in the possession of the concern at the date of baalce sheet. It is possible that after the asset had been acquired and the necessary entries made in the books of accounts, the asset might have been disposed of or pledged or mortgaged and no entry had been made regarding these facts in the books of accounts before the closing of the financial year. He has also to see whether a particular asset as appearing in the balance sheet exists or not. Verification of liabilities is also as important as the verification and assets. If the liabilities are overstated or understated, the balance sheet will not represent a true and fair view of the state of affairs of the company. In short, verification is a function of examining assets & liabilities to check (i) value (ii) ownership (iii) title (iv) existence (v) possession and (vi) to see whether the assets are free from any charge or encumbrance etc. Objects of verification – Verification of assets and liabilities is done with the following objects. i To know whether the balance sheet exhibits a true and fair view of the state of affairs of the business. ii To find out whether the assets were in existence. iii To find out the ownership and title of the assets. iv To show correct valuation of assets and liabilities. v To verify the arithmetical accuracy of the books of accounts. vi To ensure that the assets have been recorded properly. vii To detect frauds & errors, if any viii To find out whether there is an adequate internal control regarding acquisition, utilization and disposal of assets.
